Hey everyone!

Why can’t I pass the 2nd case? I’m getting exactly the same result I’m supposed to. Any ideas?

• titleCase(“I’m a little tea pot”) should return “I’m A Little Tea Pot”.
``````function titleCase(str) {
var splitStr = str.toLowerCase().split(" ");
var newStr = "";

for (var i=0; i < splitStr.length; i++) {
if (i > 0) {
newStr += " ";
}
for (var j=0; j < splitStr[i].length; j++) {
if (splitStr[i][j] == splitStr[i][0]) {
newStr += splitStr[i][0].toUpperCase();
} else {
newStr += splitStr[i][j];
}

}
}

//newStr.trim();

return newStr;
}
``````

Your code returns: `I'm A LittLe Tea Pot`, note the extra capital L in LittLe.

You are currently checking if any of the letters in a word match with the first letter, and then capitalize that letter. You should only capitalize the first one. The easiest way to do this with your code: `if(j === 0)` (is this the first letter) instead of `if (splitStr[i][j] == splitStr[i][0])` (is this the same letter as the first letter).

Facepalm. I checked that code SO MANY TIMES, and I couldn’t figure what I had done wrong. I really didn’t notice the extra capital “L”.
